Dear A.S.S. Editor
Read one forum letter in today’s papers, the writer made a case for shorter working hours.
His argument is on the basis that now with technology advances and productivity gains, shorter working hours is possible. Researchers has also found that working shorter hours in a week actually increases the overall productivity of the employees. However, in Singapore, can we really afford to work shorter hours? We might lose the competitive edge against our other Asian neighbours.
Seems like shorter working hours are only possible for those at the top of the employment chain. Those at the bottom rung of the ladder need to work doubly had to ensure we have enough money to survive.
